Dorset is known for its mild climate, sandy beaches, and stunning scenery. Boasting miles and miles of sandy beaches, some of the best weather in the UK and longest life expectancy in Britain, Dorset makes for a great place to call home. Its mixture of bustling modern cities and historic market towns means there is something to cater for everybody.
Here's a few more great reasons why Dorset is the place to be:
40% of the county is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
The spectacular Jurassic Coast – the only natural World Heritage Site in England
